Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

One of the best things in our generation is that we are allowed to ask why. We are often unsure about so many things and in today's time there are many people who are very happy answering our questions!

Our Gurus did prohibit cutting hair. And there is a very goood reason behind it. Vaisakhi, which we celebrate every year was started by Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji. He told his sikhs not to do 5 things - You can read description of it here. It has Punjabi in it too as the primary source and proof. http://www.damdamitaksaal.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=80&Itemid=68&limitstart=15 " . Hajamat – Cutting, plucking, dying Kesh

Cutting hair is strictly forbidden in Gurmat. From your head down to your toes, no hair is to be plucked, cut, burnt or chemically/surgically removed. Kesh are not to be dyed by any method whatsoever and the plucking of hair is not permitted.42

"The treacherous has altered the perfect human body, Making it lose its natural beauty. He/She will not get acceptance in the court of God And is an infidel, a dog and is devil like."

42 When people start to age they start dying their hair black/brown or plucking their white hairs, this is forbidden and vanity is to be relinquished by enshrining the Guru’s teachings

Keeping your Kesh is essential. Upon the death of a relative, the deceased’s hair is not to be shaved off. The cutting of hair is prohibited in other religions as well, but in Gurmat cutting hair is a cardinal sin and results in a person being an outcast. You are to guard against committing this cardinal sin. Your Kesh are not to be washed with ashes or clay, they are to be washed with shampoo, yoghurt or lasee. Lying down with your Kesh uncovered or partaking in any action with your Kesh uncovered is strictly forbidden. You are not to enter a dusty, dirty place with your Kesh uncovered. Cutting the Kesh or piercing the ears/noses of your children is strictly forbidden. The hair of children is not to be tied in dreadlocks. From a young age, the Kesh of your children are to be combed with a Kangha.

"The complete form of man is with a beard, which is left untied. The Kesh are combed with a wooden Kangha."

Amritdharee Singhs are to keep their beards open and untied."

This is Rehet Nama which I sent. It means Code of Conduct of a Sikh. Means a Sikh is a person who follows these.

Also, Guru Gobind Singh ji valued Hair so much that he gave us 2 kakars to take proper care of it. Kanga and Keski. This is written here http://www.damdamitaksaal.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=80&Itemid=68&limitstart=14

Men and women both should tie Keski to protect their hair.

One thing which has always came into my mind. Why did Guru ji like hair so much anyways? What is the value of Hair in religion and science.

-All Guru kept uncut hair and wore a turban. -In olden times when Mugels used to rule in India. A great Gursikh (Guru's beloved Sikh) name Bhai Taru Singh ji accepted death but did not allow them to cut his hair. (You can google his name). If hair was not important, why would he do that? - In Guru Granth Sahib ji -which is the ever living Guru of Sikhs. It is written KUbu qyrI pgrI mITy qyry bol ] How handsome is your turban! And how sweet is your speech.

"Rom rom meh baseh muraar || Within each and every hair, the divine enemy of pride abides." Bhagat Kabir|| SGGS||344 "Romae rom rom romae mai gurmukh raam dhiaa-ae raam || With each hair and every hair, the enlightened being meditates on the divine Lord." Guru Raam Das|| SGGS||443

Many times Guru ji says it again and again.

• Did you know Jesus, and Hindu god and goddess all kept hair. Hair has spiritual purpose not just in Sikhism but in many more religions. http://www.realsikhism.com/index.php?subaction=showfull&id=1248364871&ucat=7
• List item
• Science! Yes Science says Hair has scientific and practice purpose to it. http://www.searchsikhism.com/hair3.html . (Sikhism is so realistic and practice religion. There are many proofs to this)
• Dasam Dwar. This is a very important but a bit complicated thing to understand. But as you go forward in Sikhi it is going to be so much clear. http://www.sadhsangat.com/dasam-duar-the-tenth-gate-revised/

Personally, I have seen soooo many houses where children brought Sikhi into their homes. I know youngsters who are the only people not eating meat or keeping Dastaars in their whole house. It is amazing because Guru ji is doing so much Kirpa on youngsters and through them I have seen entire family gets so positively effected and they all start to follow it. It is amazing!

So many people even in western countries are finding Sikhism so fascinating and White, Black so many I have seen are following it. Also, about what you were telling about your grandfather. All Gurus are not minor people, but they all have same light. Means, If Guru Gobind Singh ji says Khalsa is to keep uncut hair, Guru Nanak dev ji would say the same. They themselves kept their hair! And, Sikhs infact are doing amazing in proffesion. https://www.facebook.com/YoungSikhProfessionalsNetworkAus , http://thelangarhall.com/general/sikh-women-first-turbaned-pilot-in-america/ , http://www.sikhentrepreneur.com/ashvinder-singh/ . This is nothing because I personally know Sikhs speciallizing in Neuroscience, rocket science and so much more. ( I honestly know them. )

You are asking this question because you are so blessed as well. Even though no body has told you, your soul which is a part of God already knows the right answer which is why all other people's answers are confusing to you. My suggestion is challenge it! Challenge yourself and start keeping your kes. I guarantee you that you will see so many miracles taking place inside you and around you. You will yourself see the change. Its more like people cant tell you how a strawberry tastes like. They can say sweet.. but you have to really taste it inorder to know it for yourself. Take Amrit with Guru ji's Kirpa, and become a Khalsa. The change gives only indescribable bliss...
